Lexi gasped. "You mean…"

"Look, I don't know what to do yet. I just knew that's what you wanted," he saying eyeing her mussed appearance.

"That's not what I wanted."

"If it wasn't, you wouldn't have let me do it," he told her simply.

message 38: by Raeann

Raeann I just started reading the "Avoiding" series, and wanted to tell you how much I love it. It reminds me of the 12 year on/off/on/off relationship I had with my first love, also helps that I'm too a 5' with curly hair ;), oh he was a 6'3" with dark hair.


message 37: by Britt

Britt I just finished the new edition of AR (I read the previous one as well)and all I can say is thanks for not make me like Jack again and make me love Rampsey even more now. The new hot scene in the kitchen...loved it. My only question is when is the 3rd book of the series release? BTW great job congrats!
